Another Dinoot officially hits the road.  This one is a Compact Dinoot Trailer named “Rosebud” built by Robyn from the blog City Girl Camping.

Jeep Trailer Fiberglass Tub Kit Dinoot Customer Build

Robyn was concerned that her minimal DIY experience would be a problem.  In her words, “let’s just say Habitat for Humanity might discourage me from volunteering.”  From our discussions, and learning that she had help from a support network; I was comfortable her project had a high potential for being successfully completed.  After a number of discussions, she became comfortable too and ready to dive in.

Her Dinoot rides on a Harbor Freight frame and is running stock size tires.  It is Tent Topped using a set of Thule 300 rain gutter towers on Thule fake rain gutters with our reinforcement brackets on the inside.  She has also mounted a battery in front of the tub.

Overall for a being a beginner DIYer,  her Dinoot project when smoothly with only a hiccup or two that were quickly resolved. Throughout her project she would send questions with pictures that made it quick and easy to get her the info necessary to keep moving forward.

Here is a link to a blog post she did on her Dinoot project.  Check it out!


Just received pictures of Jeff’s MOAB Tent Unit setup; Jeff purchased a portion of the MOAB kit, making his own platform hinges and bows.  All the MOAB tent unit components can be purchased individually.

Here is what Jeff had to say about his MOAB:

“I would like to thank you again for putting out a very nice product. I was finally able to get out of town and use the tent for 7 straight days; 5 by myself and 2 with the lady. The size was perfect for the both of us. We were both warm and comfortable. She loved the changing room.”

The first customer built Dinoot is on the road. This build is in California by a Father / Daughter team.  It is an Extended tub kit with large inner fenders built on a bolt-together frame.  They used aluminum hub space for Jeep Rubicon wheels on their Dinoot.  They built a nice frame attached rack system for setting it up as a Tent Topped camper.  Their Dinoot uses one of our soft tonneau covers to keep items in the tub protected.  When they are ready later this month it will be getting one of our new smooth tailgates installed.
